In the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr., MLK Day has become a national day of service. KID Museum embraces this movement–our mission and vision include community service and giving back to others. For the third year in a row, KID Museum participated in Montgomery County’s Day of Service event. At the KID Museum table, children made buttons displaying their pledges for how to make a difference all year long. Some buttons pledged to help the environment, to stop bullying, or to be true to oneself.

Over the weekend, KID gave museum visitors the opportunity to participate in a service project on-site. Children and their parents helped to make scarves for those in need. Scarves were no-sew, knotted fleece in a rainbow of colors. All scarves will be donated to Greentree Shelter, a local program run by the National Center for Children and Families.
